Most of us take our home security for granted. We don’t like to think about having someone break into our houses, let alone take any of our valuable possessions. However, the reality is that crime is not absent from most neighborhoods, so it’s important to do what you can to ward off thieves. In our experience at Unlock Indy LLC, here are a few things you can do to keep you and your valuables safe in the home.
1. Install a home security system.
Your first line of defense is to install an alarm system at home. Not only will a security system warn you and local law enforcement of an invasion, but the signs that you place in your yard will also make invaders think twice before trying to break into your home.
2. Invest in quality locks.
Do your exterior doors have a deadbolt? Did you replace the locks after moving into your home? Make sure your locks can keep out unwanted guests with some help from our team at Unlock Indy. We can install a deadbolt or even rekey your entire home with quality locks.
3. Keep valuables in a home safe.
Even with a security system and good locks, you may want to add another layer of security for small, valuable items or important documents. We recommend that you get a home safe. You can get a home safe in many different sizes to fit your needs. We recommend that you make several copies of your safe key to avoid losing it and then having to call us to get into your safe or rekey it. While we do provide small safe services, you spend less if you have plenty of keys from the start.
